If you know anything about dog shelters, it is that they can be very isolating at times.

But one thing you need to know about dogs is how loyal they are. They would go to ends of the earth for someone they love.

Meet Merrill and Taco. A three-year-old Pit Bull and an eight-year-old chihuahua. These two have formed a friendship so precious that it will melt your heart.

They met when they lived together at the Rocket Dog Rescue shelter.

When Merrill fell sick and needed surgery, Taco was right there by her side. When Merrill fell depressed, it was Taco who got her through it.

When they got separated, they would cry until they got back together again.

And one day, Merril finally made Taco realize how much of a hero he was. When a potential adopter came in to adopt her, she refused to leave until he adopted Taco too.
